Community Supported Agriculture - CSA
- Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Resource Guide
Information from the Illinois Direct Farm Business Guide. The CSA model is a new method of marketing agricultural products and different farms adapt the model in different ways. However, in a situation where sales occur in advance of the growing season and where customers are encouraged to visit the farm, there are many potential legal concerns with a CSA program. Many CSA farmers are not aware of these legal risks. To foster a vibrant CSA community that is prepared to meet future challenges, they have prepared resources exclusively for CSA farmers.
